Yea, International Day of the Woman



Do You Vet Yourself?


For me, when I think of vetting, it is a process of investigation, checking something thoroughly, examining, understanding, and getting current with what exists in reality. Vetting is not just a political process that happens before a candidate for office is confirmed, we can use this tool to examine our emotions, our thoughts, our desires, beliefs, and our actions to understand why we feel and why we do the things we do. Whatever is the state of our emotions, physical or mental health, or other, has an impact on the choices we make. So, what is the state of your mind, soul, and body, and are your choices passing through filters that have been thoroughly vetted and examined?

The decisions we make from choices we have chosen, have consequences; so take the time to examine thy choices.

What is your attitude to betrayal? The sanctimonious “how dare you?” of one who has never betrayed anyone either?  What do you do after the initial hurt & feelings of disappointment, especially from those we love? Do we cut people off, including their relatives, friends, dogs, & cats, & emotional blackmail?





Ah, how many of us are guilty of saving the best for last? Come on, it is as natural a thought, as far as thoughts go. We love the suspense of waititing to surprise our loved ones with our presence or gifts, you take months, or years to finally decide you are going to propose to your lover (finally!) and then spend unnecessary time waiting for the right moment, right? Of course, all great intentions. You want to wait till that all important guest comes before you use the fine china, or the special cut of meat drying in the freezer, or waiting to wear that special dress only on that special occasion. How about waiting endlessly to forgive until you feel like it?…

…… what if you don’t last long enough, what if they don’t hang around waiting for you to love them? Will saving the best for last have been worth it? Are you waiting to live your best life only when all the elements align perfectly? Why not start today? NOW
Give the best you can while you’re able to, and love as much as you can while you have a heart to. When the moment is gone, it’s gone. It’s hard, but try not to leave for Toni, that which can be done today; go out there and look be someone who respects the gift of life, honor it with the choices you make that say you are aware of just how precious life is, and it could be shorter than you think.

See the Change in Others Too

Enter a caption

So often we believe in our ability to change, transform, & renew who we are; we move on from behavior that doesn’t serve us well into fruitful choices. Yet, we might not be as open or kind enough to accept or see these changes in others. We hold folks hostage to their past & see only what justifies our impression of them. No one holds the patent on being transformed, so make room for others to be different in your eyes, show love in action.


Mah Mekolle



Some days, all we have to do, is surrender to the possibility, that we do not have all

the answers, and we do not control everything. In that moment we surrender to the

force within us, the healer and all-knowing. We call him many things in different

languages, but he is God, the creator, LOVE. reach out to him, surrender, ask for

peace, then sit back and receive it. Rejuvenate your spirit, knowing, while you

seek and work for the best in this world, you do not hold all your answers.


Mah Mekolle


“When all is said and done, God loves me more than I could ever love myself. As a result of this belief in God’s unconditional love, I can tap into its essence and love myself enough, that my love shines through pain, distress, anxiety, fear, and hopelessness, to open my eyes to the beauty of life; and then share it with others” – MAH MEKOLLE


It’s sometimes all in your perspective, isn’t it? No matter how many sermons we listen to

or how many times we are told that we are worthy of joy, peace, hope, and most of all

LOVE; in the end, all that can be in front of us, and we still won’t see it. I have found

my perspective wreak havoc in my life, when all I could see was “poor me”, or

“it’s them”.  When I chose to see what I desired and wanted for my life, soon, I started

to see possibilities! It’s not about being blind to the truth of what our life is like, it is

about expanding our perspective to see more than just the circumstance  that might

not change that moment. There is always a spread laid out for us, can we see it?


What does your perspective show you about your life, your possibilities? Dark or colorful?





What do you truly believe in? I am not asking what you think you believe in. I believe the sun shines daily, and I believe poetry is a gift to words. What do you believe in that can have a positive impact in your life, now, today? Could it be, it starts with what you believe about yourself, your inner core, the contents of your dreams. Who has the power to dream a bigger dream for you that has human form? So, why spend more time worried about validating the worth of your dreams, rather than seeking answers on how to accomplish them? What do you believe?
